No, Florida is not a community property state therefore debts not jointly incurred belong solely to the person who holds the account. In Florida married couples are generally presumed to hold jointly owned property as Tenancy By The Entirety (TBE) which makes such property exempt from creditor action when only one spouse is responsible for the debt.
